Review: Jonah Hill Makes Directorial Debut With "Mid90s"
A year after Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird" comes another actor-turned-director's memory-inspired California-set coming-of-age tale from the boutique film studio A24. This time, the time period has been dialed back a few years (from the early '00s to the mid-'90s), Dave Mathews Band has been traded for...

Review: Paul Dano Makes Directorial Debut With "Wildlife"
It's fall of 1960 in Montana when we meet the Brinson family in "Wildlife ," a carefully considered and deeply moving adaptation of a Richard Ford novel about a fracturing marriage and the teenage son witnessing it all. Things don't start out bad, or don't seem to be. Jerry Brinson (Jake Gyllenhaal...

Review: "The Conners" Shows Life After Roseanne
Can there be a "Roseanne" without Roseanne? The answer is yes, indeed. There can even be a pretty good sitcom. And you might not miss her that much. ABC on Tuesday night aired the first episode of "The Conners," a spinoff of "Roseanne" without Roseanne Barr. An overdose of pain pills may be the...

Review: Director Marielle Heller's "Can You Ever Forgive Me?"
The early 1990s New York of Marielle Heller's "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" isn't so long ago but it already feels staggeringly distant. It's a New York of publishing industry cocktail parties, of book stores, lots of them, and of scheming, foul-mouthed eccentrics. Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) and...

Review: Director George Tillman Jr.'s "The Hate U Give"
"The Hate U Give " begins with a scene at the family dinner table where a father is giving his young kids "the talk" — the one in which he explains to his 9-year-old daughter, Starr, and toddler son exactly what to do when they're pulled over by a police officer. Hands on the dashboard. No sudden...

Review: Director Damien Chazelle's "First Man"
Nearly a half-century has passed since the majestic moment when Neil Armstrong stepped carefully onto the lunar landscape, left foot first, taking that giant leap for mankind. Whether you were alive then and glued to the TV, or relived it later through that iconic, grainy NASA footage, what you...

Review: Felix Van Groeningen's "Beautiful Boy"
Relapse is part of recovery. That's what one doctor in "Beautiful Boy " tells David Sheff (Steve Carell), the distraught father of a teenage son, Nic (Timothee Chalamet), who has been dabbling in alcohol, weed, cocaine, heroin and crystal meth, and has become an addict. He disappears for nights on...

Review: Drew Goddard's "Bad Times at the El Royale"
Drew Goddard, the screenwriter-turned-director whose feature debut was the meta-horror film "A Cabin in the Woods," has laid another movie trap. This time, in the pulpy but artificial thriller "Bad Times at the El Royale," it's a motel. And as anyone who has ever watched a movie knows, bad things...

Art, Activism Come Together For Amandla Stenberg In "The Hate U Give"
Actress Amandla Stenberg was named after a 1989 Miles Davis album — a lush, African-tinged funk fusion that takes its name from the Zulu and Xhosa word for "power." In South Africa under apartheid, "amandla" was — and still is — a rallying cry against oppression. It's a lot for Stenberg to live up...

Review: Director Paul Greengrass' "22 July"
Anders Behring Breivik probably thinks "22 July " is about him. He's the violent narcissist whose actions are at the heart of the film, but Breivik is really the enigma in its center. No, "22 July" is about everyone other than Breivik — and that is a remarkable cinematic feat. This powerful, must-...
